Fox News announces support for CNN, Acosta lawsuit against Trump admin

Fox News announces support of CNN’s suit against Trump says they’ll file court brief backing them

U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly on Tuesday ordered the Trump administration to respond to the lawsuit by 11 a.m. (1600 GMT) on Wednesday and he set a hearing for 3:30 p.m. (2030 GMT) that day on the request for a restraining order.

In response, the Justice Department argued in a court filing that Trump has "broad discretion to regulate access to the White House for journalists".

Both Sanders and Trump are named as defendants in the CNN suit, along with Chief of Staff John Kelly and Randolph Alles, director of the Secret Service.

The "conduct" mentioned by Sanders in the tweet that the government lawyers cite actually refers to a false and since-dropped argument that Sanders had made in the aftermath of the press conference - that Acosta was "placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern".

"We continue to urge the administration to reverse course and fully reinstate CNN's correspondent", WHCA President Olivier Knox said.

The Camp Fire Is Officially The Most Destructive In California's History
Among the towns under evacuation orders is Thousand Oaks, where a gunman killed 12 people in a rampage on Wednesday . All told, an estimated 300,000 people statewide were under evacuation orders, majority in Southern California .

Trump's former aide was in D.C. Wednesday when a photog asked her about Jim Acosta and CNN suing POTUS for revoking his press pass. Omarosa was pretty nonchalant about it, because she claims the Prez held "private meetings" about Acosta back when she was still in the White House.

CNN filed the federal lawsuit against the Trump administration on Tuesday demanding that the White House restore the press credential of star reporter Jim Acosta.

Other media organizations to join Fox News in submitting amicus briefs to the court in support of CNN include the Associated Press, Bloomberg, First Look Media, Gannett, NBC, New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Politico, National Press Club, Press Freedom Defense Fund and EW Scripps.

The right-wing Fox News has been much more favorable to Donald Trump's presidency than CNN-where hosts like Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo have been persistent Trump critics-or the liberal-leaning MSNBC.

The White House memo also makes the case that Acosta was given sufficient notice about the suspension of his credentials, saying, Acosta "received notice of the reasons for his pass's revocation the night it happened and again the next day".

Meg Ryan engaged to singer John Mellencamp
Talk of an engagement began after Ryan was spotted wearing a new sparkler on her ring finger on Wednesday in NYC ( inset above ). John's comments on the Howard Stern Show were rare as neither he nor private Ryan have shared much publicly about their romance.

The White House Correspondents' Association has since come out in support of the lawsuit, and now CNN has found another unlikely ally in their legal battle: Fox News, the president's favorite "fair and balanced" news source.

Trump's attorneys argued it would be "extraordinary" for the court to decide to "directly police access to the secure White House complex where the president lives and works, as well as to dictate who the President must invite to press events".

Trump has continuously called the media the "enemy of the people" and has specifically targeted CNN.

The White House has dismissed CNN's complaint as "grandstanding" and vowed to "vigorously defend" against the lawsuit.

"Jim Acosta is just somebody who gets up and grandstands".

Pakistan beat New Zealand in 2nd ODI
Afridi, victor of the Man of the Match award, bowled aggressively, in all of his three spells and was rewarded with 4 for 38. The incident took place in the 13th over when a short delivery from Lockie Ferguson struck the helmet grille Imam-ul-Haq.

Instead, the White House is complaining about Acosta's aggressive style. And at least in this case, the major media are putting up a united front against the White House.
